Agent K(ahunasan) "Kraut/Psych/Desert Rock" is an excellent description of sonic landscape dished out by collaboration of Yawning Man Ace Gary Arce backed by the instrumentalists Sons of Alpha Centauri.
I would not have minded one bit if Wendy Fowler Rae had sung lead vocals on all tracks-someway, somehow.
This has something for fans of multi-genres especially those loving fleshed out instrumental jams.
Lots of touchstones to giants of the combined genres.
A Unique Sonic Experience! Favorite track: Ghostship - Deadwater.

about

The band known as YAWNING SONS is the result of a unique collaboration between musicians from different sides of the Atlantic. In July 2008, Californian desert rock veteran Gary Arce (YAWNING MAN / TEN EAST / DARK TOOTH ENCOUNTER etc.) was flown out to the UK to produce an album with the Kent based instrumental riff-rock quartet, SONS OF ALPHA CENTAURI. Upon the first day of working in the studio, it was clear that something special was taking place. Within the space of a week Gary and the band would work together to write and record their own collaborative album. The resulting sound is like no other experienced before.

The following few months after recording, more additions were made to the recording: vocals from Scott Reeder (KYUSS / OBSESSED), Mario Lalli (FATSO JETSON / DESERT SESSIONS) and Wendy Rae Fowler (QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE / MARK LANEGAN BAND / UNKLE). The results are sublime. From the soaring vocals of Fowler on the opener, “Ghostship - Deadwater”, to the drone-laden vocals of Reeder on “Garden Sessions III”, which is almost like a blend of period ‘Floyd, through to the extended guitar workouts on the Lalli-helmed “Meadows”, right on through to the chiming guitars and metronomic drums on the closer, “Japanese Garden”, Ceremony To The Sunset will prove to be a revelation to fans of any and every of the artists involved, and will appeal greatly to lovers of Kraut / psych / desert-rock.
